Picking a pump - Stuck between 35X or 655

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Helping my buddy throw together his dream rig right now and have ordered everything except the pump/res, so looking for advice on a good pump/res combo for:
2x alphacool 240
raystorm cpu block
EK 770 gpu block (with potential for another in SLI)

We were going to get the 35X and the swiftech res that just goes right on top but they're currently out of stock, and after looking at the reviews and a few posts here might have been a good thing; I guess they crack/leak?

Have seen a LOT of OCN members with the MCP655 variants but haven't really looked into them that much, know that the 35X has some ridiculous pressure ability so having available with him potentially wanting SLI wc'd down the line was mainly what attracted my attention.


Any suggestions? Haven't seen a res that's meant for the 35X other than the swiftech one, but haven't dealt with anything other than a bay-res before personally smile.gif

You can use pretty much any cylinder res you want with the 35X, all you need is a small male to male fitting such as this - BP Dual G1/4" Male / Male Fitting
It's what I did with my 35X....but I also did the same thing when I used to run a D5/MCP655.


I used a pump top like THIS when I used to have a D5, and that's how I was able to screw the male to male fitting into the pump, then screw the res onto that.

I think you would be happy with either pump. They're both plenty powerful for running multiple rads and blocks in a single loop.
Some things to consider about each from my personal experience.
The D5 -
*Is larger
*Quieter at 100% than compared to the 35X running at 100%
*Is much more customizable from what I've seen, pump tops, mod dress up kits, etc.

The 35X -
*Small and compact
*PWM works great
*Can be quiet (running mine off my CPU motherboard header, never goes above 50% with the curve I'm using, super silent)
*The stock top is the best available for it (no sense is picking up an aftermarket one, which is usually the case with a D5)


So that's all I've got. thumb.gif

Awesome, will probably stick with the 35X then and grab that fitting; any suggestion on the tube res?

I'm a big fan of the MCP35x. Pwm control allows the pump to run significantly slower than voltage controlled pumps.

I'm a big fan of the Bitspower reservoirs. That's a 150mm version I just linked you, but they come in a variety of sizes ranging from something like 40mm up to 400mm. They're also available in several different colors. Can't beat 'em for the price IMO.

35Xs get too loud at higher voltages but I guess everyone has their standard of what loud is...
Go with the notorious D5 pump. If he is putting his "dream rig" together he is probably getting a Aquaero 5 which can do anything to a D5 pump. They are also dead silent and extremely reliable.
